Pentium D is a family of Intel dual core processors (CPU) designed for socket 775 motherboards. This Intel processor has special sensors that report the core temperature. Monitor the temperature to ensure your processor is not overheating. This is especially important if you overclock your Pentium D processor. A high CPU temperature often causes system failures and reduces the processor lifespan. Use available freeware to retrieve the hardware status on your computer and monitor the processor temperature.
